This fibre work is collaged and quilted from both purchased and hand painted cloth, to work together into a captured nature experience. I designed this piece in a workshop with Australian fibre artist, Gloria Loughman. A picture of my composition was chosen by her to be included in her out-coming book in the student gallery section. I used some commercial fabric, but then altered it with over painting. Diamonds were cut and rearranged on a backing. The tree was painted on another cloth, cut out and stitched on. More free motion machine stitching was done to add line and texture. The work was layered and quilted. This art is ready to be hung on a wall, out of direct sunlight. There is a hanging sleeve with a wooden dowel on the back. (It can be gently washed by hand with mild soap and patted dry between towels, if ever needed.)
